The actual question should be, “what kind of bookworm are you?” I did score a 20 here. What about you?
I picked up this book because of bookclub, but I didn’t finish in time to discuss it. I was not too sure about the topic, because of the way it was presented to me.
I loved the book! It was written from the perspective of two different women, with two different outlooks. Some of it came from race, but I feel the majority of it came from class.
One woman was raised in a culture where your talent was recognized, not how much money you could make. The other was raised with money. One felt that each person was living their own life. The other felt that if you weren’t excelling, you needed a push.
It was a wonderful book with great characters and a solid storyline. I enjoyed almost every moment of it. It was definitely worth reading.
I picked this up for bookclub. I hadn’t realized that the book was originally published so long ago that it pops up under modern classics.
When I was reading it, I was struck by how much of the story is still very relevant today. It is a hard story to read, but I hope to get to the movie someday.
I enjoyed the book and I would definitely recommend reading it. I was not so thrilled with the ending, which is why I didn’t give it 5 stars.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this book! I picked it up because it was available at the library. I found that it had a lot of good information in it.
One of the things that I loved was that the author made it clear that this is her opinion, and she is not speaking for all black women. Just herself. Also, when there came a time to tell the white person part of the story, she chose to have a white person write that part, since she felt she couldn’t give it justice.
Great information was given in a humorous way. I would definitely recommend this book.
Here’s another one. Enjoy!
I am of the age that I need reading glasses more often than I think I do. Yes, I am aware that it’s not this type of glasses. I think, though, that these glasses should be full. I am glad they are reading, though. They’ll learn something, maybe?
The above linked article tells about one of my favorite books growing up being made into a movie. The only thing that disappointed me about this article was that it doesn’t say when the movie will be made. I can’t wait!
